Great Holiday Ideas for the Summer

Travel in summer conjures up visions of packed airports, lost luggage and heatwaves. A week in a resort with a packed beach seems no longer worth the hassle. Besides, World Reviewers are people who are looking for more than that - you want your holiday to be an experience, to be memorable, and you want to come back enriched as well as relaxed.

Modern summer holiday hassle can be mitigated by choosing, first, a less crowded holiday destination; and second, by considering different ways to travel - by high speed train; hiring a car; or shopping around for deals on the main scheduled airlines, and at less popular times of day. You should also think about choosing other places to stay when you get there - renting a house, swapping your home (though of course that depends on where you live!), or even camping or motor-homing - great fun if you have kids. The key is to choose your holiday experience or experiences first - and then tailor your transport and accommodation options around them.

These experiences need not be expensive. Some are active, some not, though none require you to be super-fit. But they are all spectacular, especially in summer, and way less crowded and stressful than messing around with summer resorts.
